Olivia Pope Faces the Biggest 'Scandal' of All: Watch the Season 3 Promo

Fall TV

Olivia Pope might be the best fixer there is — but even she might not be able to fix her own scandal.

An electrifying new promo for Season 3, which premieres Oct. 3, shows how things get out of control after her affair with the president is revealed. 

"We need to make a plan," a very upset Olivia tells Fitz, in what looks to be some kind of basement room.

Her father, Rowan, knows how bad this could be. "They will gut you and everyone you know," he warns.

Most shocking of all is Cyrus's reaction: "Start a kill folder on Olivia Pope."

Damn, we knew Cyrus was cold, but wow!

"Scandal" returns for Season 3 on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
